Will Packer and Malcolm D. Lee offer inspiration for blacks in film at 4th annual Influencers Brunch
According to the Newsletter of Enchanted PR
(Washington, DC) — The 4th annual Influencers Brunch was an undeniable highlight of the Congressional Black Caucus weekend in Washington, DC. Curated by Terk Entertainment Group partners Tarek “Terk” Stevens and Ronald “Tricky” Montgomery, the program opened with breakout Pop/R&B artist Eli serenading the crowd, then transitioned to an intimate conversation with Hollywood heavyweights Will Packer and Malcolm D. Lee, moderated by Heart & Soul Channel’s personality Cayman Kelly on Sirrius XM radio.
Packer and Lee were raw and candid, sharing insider knowledge about the movie industry while promoting their new film Night School. “We appreciate your support, because every ticket counts when you are up against others,” Packer explained. Lee echoed Packers sentiment and encouraged others to follow their passion especially if it led them to pursue the film industry. Lee suggested hopefuls be prepared to start at the bottom and do the work. “I started at the bottom. I got coffee, bagels, etc. I even messed up sometimes and got yelled at, but it’s ok,” he said. “Sometimes we want the success but aren’t willing to start at the bottom, but in many cases that’s the only way in.”
What began as a casual breakfast meeting between Anthony Anderson, Tarek “Terk” Stevens and Chris Spencer during The BET Honors has now become an exclusive gathering where Capitol Hill, Hollywood and Wall Street converge to celebrate igniters of the cultural power shift, recognize the impact of dynamic partnerships and empower the next generation of social change agents. “It’s always a beautiful room,” says Ronald “Tricky” Montgomery, “you look around and see so many different examples of black excellence from entertainment, to politicians to corporate brand managers, it’s black people supporting, collaborating and celebrating each other.”
Tarek “Terk” Stevens believes the brunch symbolizes the importance of building and sustaining relationships. “Your influence extends beyond your own platform and includes your relationships. The Influencers Brunch represents fertile ground for collaborative innovation that inspires global action,” he says. The relationships in this room go back for decades and others are just beginning, but this event represents how invaluable those connections are even beyond business.”
In addition to hearing insightful commentary from Packer and Lee, guests dined on a gourmet style brunch, enjoyed the beautiful rooftop view overlooking the Capitol and Union Station and received exclusive gift bags filled with Shea Moisture products.
Celebrity and notable guests included; author/speaker Michael Eric Dyson, former Essence editor-in-chief Susan L. Taylor, actor Lamman Rucker, comedian/radio morning show host Joe Clair, pop culture expert Jawn Murray, model/actress/morning radio host Claudia Jordan, ‘Love In The City’ star and International Motivational speaker Bershan Shaw, Josh J1 Raiford Program Director of 93.9 WKYS Radio One, Maryland Delegate Jay Walker and Angie M. Gates who serves as the Director of the DC Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment.
The 4th annual Influencers Brunch was sponsored by Shea Moisture, Barclays, Night School (Universal Pictures), CVS Health, Howard Stirk Holdings, Blackmaled Productions, Will Packer Media, Sunshine Matter, LLC, Tito’s Vodka, Jack Daniel’s and 202Creates as part of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s month long initiatirve and the Office of Cable, Television, Film, Music and Entertainment.

When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong- Did Wanda Smith’s husband really pull a gun on Katt Williams at the Food Depot?
According to the V103 website the story was told in regards to the conversation between Wanda Smith and Kat Williams when he visited V-103 radio station tagging along with his good friend Red Grant who was scheduled to do the radio interview. Wanda expressed how she was excited about Kat Williams in the beginning. However, we at the Producers Channel don’t agree with Wanda Smith’s opinion that Kat Williams had an agenda. Kat Williams (according to the interview we viewed was being his typical Kat Williams self.
It’s funny how Wanda Smith kept saying she didn’t want to be disrespectful or be in a bad place but it was Wanda who started the jabs telling Kat Williams that he needed to get his hair done. That was very disrespectful of her as a radio host. Also she called him “Miss Katt” and who does that? If Wanda Smith being the comedian that she is has done her homework on Kat Williams she would know this was all normal comedic behavior for him. No one congratulated Kat Williams on his Emmy nomination instead it was thrown up in his face about his jail stint. It got personal on Wanda’s end first according to the video.
Wanda constantly trashes people (guests of the show) and just the day before Smith was shaming Dr Gregory Lunceford (husband of Quad Webb-Lunceford) from Married to Medicine. Maybe this interview will make Wanda Smith take a good look at herself. How did Smith not see how the interview went left when she turned the wheel left first. Wow! She didn’t want to go back and forth she says but she went back and forth. Did Smith really talk about Jesus Christ in comparison to herself? Wow, Wanda really?? Please see the video below of the interview and you will see the shade. Is Smith honestly saying did I say something about you when she said “you are wearing those old a** clothes? Calling a man Miss. That’s not disrespectful? The host should never disrespect a guest under any circumstances. Did Charlemagne the God disrespect Birdman on the Breakfast Club when he said “put some respect on my name?” No. Yes as a caller said when she called in Wanda is claiming victim. She perpetuated the negativity.
After last week’s viral interview of Katt Williams on V-103’s Frank and Wanda In The Morning, Wanda Smith and Frank Ski publicly talked about everything that’s happened since. Watch as Frank and Wanda air out their feelings over the controversial Emmy-winning comedian’s visit, from how it all started, to the wild weekend of social media commentary, viral videos and tweets that followed.

The city you grew up in, race, and life’s experiences can all shape a person’s talent. This is especially true of Rap Artist/Actor BBK Phat. Born and Raised on the Westbank of New Orleans, BBK Phat made a conscious decision to relocate his family to the city of Houston. With the desire to be a rap artist since the age of 13 his ambition, talent and resources have allowed BBK Phat the opportunity to open for “Lil Wayne,Future, Sean Kingston, Erika Badu, Mack Maine, Mysitkal, Tyga, Bun B, Yo gotti, lil Boosie, Juvenile, Young Jeezy, 2 chain, Rkelly, Money Bag Yo. Finally he got a chance to scratch Miami’s baddest chick rap artist TRINA off his bucket list of artist to perform with as they recently completed the ‘Slow Grind and Wind’ Remix of “Here We Go”.
The Produer’s Channel caught up with the Slow Wine & Grind artist to inquire how his drive and determination has kept his fans motivated to see and hear more from him. The better question was what did it take to snag Miami Love & Hip Hop cast member & rapper TRINAfor his latest remix? Check out the interview:
Who wrote and produced your Remix “Here We Go” and what was the concept behind it?
I wrote it myself and Kirk Thuglas was the producer. I was going through a lot in my life at the time. The popular music producer Kirk said he had a song for me to write to to give me a different flavor and when I first heard the song I loved it. It took me a few days to write something to get it right but when I finally heard it played back to me I literally fell to my knees. It sounded better than I imagined it would.
What made you want to put Trina on the remix?
It actually was a collaborative effort between myself and my label AMS Music Entertainment. We wanted the song to be able to be placed in the hip hop category and we felt that TRINA would be the best artist to give it that hip hop appeal.
You mentioned shooting the video took 6 days; did you and Trina shoot together or separately?
Awwww man, we actually shot one full day together. It was an Epic experience. Trina is a very real individual, humble and a true professional. We got a chance to discuss a lot of different things & she absolutely loved the song. From the moment she pulled up to the house with the pool where we shot the video it was just all love. First words out of her mouth were “about time.” Her vibes were genuine. Everything was organic and we just had a good time.
What advise would you give other artist trying to establish their brand?
Get your paperwork in order.
What makes your lable AMS South Music Entertainment different that others?
AMS is different from other labels because they are not looking for anything from the artist. They are in a financial situation where their business is already moving forward. Their business is in order, everything is in line; they are organized and trustworthy. I don’t feel like either party is using each other for self gain. They have the connections and the resources to help their artist achieve their goals. It’s more than business because the level of respect we have for each other is actual genuine. On both ends we want to see each other grow bigger. It’s a mutual respect. I’ve been dealing with the CEOAlvin Maysfor about two years and I know he is genuinely concerned about my career reaching the highest level and I wish the same for the label as well.
When did you change your stage name from Annunaki Phat (and what does that name mean)?
My best friend got killed and that just blew my world. When I got over it the best I could it’s when I changed my name to BBK Phat. It’s not really a meaning. They were basically angels God sent down to teach.
According to multiple media outlets several Umpires are considering refusing to officiate matches involving Serena Williams over her behaviour at the US Open final. Video of Serena Williams demanding an apology after the umpire accused her of cheating went viral spiraling into garnering the attention of multiple news outlets.
The outspoken Wendy Williams weighed in on this stating she too also felt this was more of a feminist call. Please weigh in on your thoughts. Do you feel like the umpires teaming up to bascially boycott is overboard?
The Times U.K. quoted the following:
The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and United States Tennis Association (USTA) have backed Williams’ claims of sexism after she was given a game penalty for her behaviour during her straight-sets defeat by Naomi Osaka, of Japan, on Saturday.
This has further riled some umpires, who were already unhappy with the haphazard organisation of this year’s US Open.
Sound off in the comments if you feel the Umpires need to get over it and the one should apologize for insinuating Serena Williams was cheating.
Will Packer and Kevin Hart stay consistent when it comes to putting the “funny” in their films! Will Packer Productions also stays consistent when it comes to showing love to the city of Atlanta and holding premiere parties & screenings in the #1 city for social media. Packer & Hart engage with their invited media by delivering the best interviews and not rushing through the red carpets.
A member from Hart’s security team was overheard saying “we can rush anyone up besides Mr. Hart. He wants to talk to the press and he loves his media people.” Kevin Hart has been famous for taking selfies with the crowd and always being engaging, comical and just a very down to earth actor and comedian. With all of Hart’s success it could be very easy for Hart to have the big ego and shun the fans but that has never been the case and we love Kevin Hart for that.
Packer and Hart brought out the VIP’s, Reality Television Stars and Tastemakers of Atlanta. Spotted on the red carpet was Isaac Hayes III, Dr Heavenly Kimes, daughter Alana, Toya Bush-Harris & Eugene Harris (Bravo TV’s Married to Medicine), Ms. Trina Braxton, Ms. Quad Webb (TV One’s Sister Circle) accompanied by her sisters Selena Johnson and Rashawn Ali, Atlanta Hawks Taurean Prince, Keshia Knight Pulliam, the beautiful RHOA Sheree Whitfield and a host of others.
Night School is a hilarious comedy starring Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and Rob Riggle. The storyline is based on a group of troublemakers forced to attend night school in order to pass the final exam to obtain their GED. The director Malcolm D. Lee, and writers Kevin Hart, Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells, Matthew Kellard, Nicholas Stoller, and John Hamburg are responsible for our giggles. You will also see a lot of cameo appearances by some of our favorite television personalites. We can’t give away any more of what’s in store so you will have to purchase your tickets to see this box office hit movie that will release September 27th.
